    Great, yet again we see unhelpful posts in the Classified section

    If you're deciding not to buy something because it's "Made in China" more fool you. Swanndri moved production because the Timaru plant was getting too old. It was the last medium grade woolen mill in New Zealand. Harkila, Berghaus, Rab....all names of respectable outdoor clothing companies who either source their material, or base their production, in China for most if not all of their products.

    Of course if you'd prefer to buy a 10-year old Swanndri in the mistaken belief that it simply "must" be better, go right ahead.

    Calm down willie gunn. No one has posted anything unhelpful. Question asked where it was made and I remember the uproar in nz when announced production was moving as I was out there. Didnt put me off buying mine and my label says made in China. The chinese factories are very good at producing something to the exact spec. as their design brief. Still a good garnment.

    Some people just like to look for a problem where there isn't one!

    Willie - I fully ( and I'd write that in foot high bold if I could ) support your view on this. And applauded/ agreed with you until I finally spotted Scudd was the negative commenter and original advertiser!

    I've not had great experience of more recent Swanndri kit as still wearing decades old stuff so can't sensibly comment on relative quality.

    Scudd - if you struggle on here you'll find these go PDQ on ebay.
